The Castelfeder Winery is a renowned producer of quality wines the Italian region of South Tyrol. The winery was founded in 1969 by Alfons Giovanett, who at that time already had many years of experience in wine production. Today, the family business is managed by Günther Giovanett, the son of the founder.
The winery is located near Neumarkt in South Tyrol and covers a total of 50 hectares of vineyards. The vineyards are situated at altitudes between 200 and 700 metres above sea level and are planted on different soil types, which gives the wines a unique diversity. The grape varieties grown on the estate are mainly autochthonous varieties such as Lagrein, Vernatsch, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir.
Castelfeder attaches great importance to the gentle and sustainable cultivation of the vineyards in order to ensure the high quality of the grapes. In the cellar, too, attention is paid to gentle processing methods in order to preserve the natural aromas and flavours of the grapes in the best possible way. The wines of Castelfeder are characterised by their elegance, finesse and complexity and are internationally appreciated for their high quality.
Castelfeder is particularly well known for its Lagrein wines, which are made the autochthonous grape variety Lagrein. These wines are characteristic for their powerful structure and their spicy aromas of berry fruits and chocolate. But also the other wines of the winery, such as the fresh Vernatsch or the full-bodied Pinot Noir, convince with their fine balance and distinct personality.
All in all, Castelfeder is a winery with a long tradition and a deep understanding of wine production in South Tyrol. The wines of the winery are of high quality and reflect the unique landscape and culture of the region.
The making of Schüttelbrot is inextricably entwined with the history of South Tyrol. This rustic family recipe has been handed down generation to generation. Our 'Bauern Schüttelbrot' is made with light rye flour and carefully improved with caraway and fennel - 100% natural crunching fun, of course.
It has a fine and delicate aroma, full-bodied, elegant and racy on the palate. These are the secrets that make the Chardonnay a suitable accompaniment for fish and white meat dishes.
The Lagrein has a fine and pleasant bouquet, reminiscent of violets. Its flavour is full, velvety and slightly bitter and it also keeps well. This is a wine that goes well with grilled and roast meats, game and spicy cheeses.
A fine, intense aroma supported by a full but at the same time, harmonious body are characteristics of this grape varietal. "Nouvelle cuisine" offers many more opportunities to enhance the characteristics of this wine, or we suggest the Gewürztraminer with spicy Asian food.
